A quick read, I found this novel to be an enjoyable and unique twist on the original Cinderella. Although a bit predictable, part of it was only because everyone knows the main plot of Cinderella. The other part was because of all the hints the author dropped along the way. I can't say I was surprised at the end when Cinder's true identity was revealed; I had already guessed it towards the middle of the book and spent the rest of the novel waiting anxiously for confirmation. Seeing as romance played a major role in the novel as well, I would have liked to see more of Kai's feelings towards Cinder during the parts written from his perspective. Without much acknowledgement of his love, the whole romance seemed slightly one-sided. But all in all, a simple and fast-paced novel with an interesting and well-written spin on the classic Cinderella fairytale.
